A Pledge to Service

Still Serving: It's Who We Are !

In 1919, The American Legion was founded on four pillars: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children & Youth. Each of these pillars encompasses a variety of programs that benefit our nation’s veterans, its service members, their families, the youth of America and ordinary citizens. These programs make a difference in hundreds of thousands of lives each year.
Our organization’s positions and programs are guided by resolutions passed by American Legion National Convention delegates, and by committee and commission members who represent 2.5 million wartime veterans and their families. These programs, and the men and women who take the time to perform them allow The American Legion to make a difference on the local, state and national levels.
It’s who we are and what we do.

“A Special Message from the Commander”

John: Bill Deal has asked if we could sent out a group message asking the availability of a driver for a 16' box cargo truck to take one our loads to Beaumont THIS Friday. We won't know if we'll need a 2nd truck yet but between 655 and 60 we filled up over 1 third of the truck. He is checking on the possible need for a driver. It may not happen but it could. Our stuff is not going to Dallas as was planned. Please respond by return email to: cjstraten@sbcglobal.netand I will let the Commander know. Thank you, John Header Commander, Arlington Post 60 We are now 2 months into the 2017-2018 American Legion year and there is a lot of stuff going on down at the Post/Lodge. Check out the upcoming dates where we have events scheduled. Get Involved!! It can be a lot of fun. Sept 30th Regular monthly business meeting at the Post/Lodge October 14th First Annual car show sponsored by Post 60. On Parking Lot at Post /Lodge October 16th Post 60 Burger night at the Post/Lodge October 26th Regular monthly business meeting at the Post/Lodge October 28th American Legion 12th district meeting at Post/Lodge The Post has just started a major fund raiser raffle to restock our financial levels in order to continue with our charitable donations. Last year we donated quite a bit to various charities and the tank has run a little dry. If we can have a successful raffle, we should be in good shape for the remainder of the year. A bit about the raffle: We are raffling off a “Large Green Egg Grilling Machine”. This grill is valued at about $900.00 retail. Tickets are $10.00 each, 3 for $20, and 8 for $50. Tickets have arrived and are already being sold. Check out the Green Egg on Google. Type in Green Egg Grill and it will bring you to the website. We will be selling tickets at our business meetings, Post burger nights, and Post breakfasts. Or….you can call me at 817-401-1914 or…..send me a message at headejc@gmail.com If every member would buy a $10.00 ticket, this raffle would be a success. July 2017 ended with a bang as the Post sponsored a breakfast on July 29th. We had a good day with 64 meals served. Thanks to everybody that came in to eat. Also, we had plenty of volunteers that came in to prepare everything. Volunteers came from the Post, Riders, and ALA Unit 60. Without help from volunteers we would not be able to do these things. As I mentioned in our last meeting on July 27th, we have traded burger night cooking duties with Boy Scout Troop 396. Effective August 1st, we will sponsor burger night on the 1st Tuesday each month, in place of the 3rd Tuesdays. A big thank you to Andre Hanekamp for taking on the duties of “Sgt at Arms” for the Post. Now, if I could just find a 2nd Vice Commander. Any takers? By now, most of you are aware of the big raffle we have going on. To update, we have sold enough tickets to be pretty close to break even. We still have quite a bit of time left before the drawing date. Many thanks to those of you who have bought tickets. If you have not yet, don’t miss out on this deal. Going into August, the Post will sponsor breakfast on the 6th and the 20th of the month. Come on down. For 6 bucks, you can’t get a better deal. Open from 0900 till 1130. See you at the Post, John Header Commander
